Empty Bottle - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

I grimace as it all happens again
Memories clash as your eyes blame
But it's not me that holds that creature
No it's not my soul that has that feature

I hold my breath, don't move, it's awake
A hunter in the hunted body, too late
I can't watch as you scream and cry
Im terrified, petrified, you scare me, I won't lie

A bad day like yesterday and the day before
Letting the fiery liquid burn to your core
A diet of death and lethargic fights
Here comes another meal by candle light

I lie down and accept my advancing fate
You still hold my heart, my sickly soul mate
But I don't expect these claws to rip it out
As you laugh while I writhe, plead and shout

So just this once I ask you to leave me be
Or wait until your vision clears and you can see
Because it kills me as the bottle slowly depletes
And I watch helpless in fear as the cycle repeats
